from The John Marsh Journals: The Life and Times of a Gentleman Composer (1752-1828), page 61:

I went to Gosport in the coach... Here I found a luxury I had long been debar'd from in being able to play again in 2 parts with my bro'r W'm who was much improv'd, having begun to learn of Mr Wafer, with whom the next day my sister, W'm & I drank tea & had music.
